Public Workshop Meeting 2 Slides

We received valuable feedback from the community at the second public meeting and drop-in work session held on April 12th, 2018.  Approximately 45 people in total showed up to give their input and to view the progress made so far on the future plans for Evans Town Center.  The planning team came prepared with three different concept plans, a draft framework plan, and various preliminary street section improvement plans for sections of Ronald Reagan Drive, Evans To Locks Road, North Belair Road, and Washington Avenue.  A presentation was also prepared to give a recap on what we heard so far, the current market conditions in the area, and case studies for walkable downtowns.

Thank you for coming to our first Public Kickoff Meeting!
